* AllMenArePerverts: Yup, even the upper-class Mr B is no exception, if "More Kissing in Porn Please, We're British", "A Thoroughly Modern Breakup" or "You Just Can't" are any indication.



* IAmVeryBritish
* [[NiceHat Nice Hats]]: Mr. B always sports a nice hat, be it a newsboy cap, bowler, boater or trilby.
* [[SmokingIsCool Pipe Smoking Is Cool]]

* SmokingIsCool: Pipe Smoking Is Cool, to be precise.
* SophisticatedAsHell: The subject matter of his raps sometimes makes him come off as this (e.g. "Oh, Santa" or "A Thoroughly Modern Breakup").

* ArchEnemy: Was in a feud (of sorts) with fellow chap-hop artist ProfessorElemental, which gained them both [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-music-videos-that-justify-existence-internet_p2/ international recognition]]. They have since guest-starred in each other's videos and recorded "The Duel" together for Elemental's latest album "Father Of Invention", which begins as a [[BattleRapping Rap Battle]] and ends with them praising each other.
